5 Dumbass Comments of the Week #2

If you like this segment, please like and share.

  1. Theist wonders why dinosaurs didn’t eat Adam and Eve (around 1:22 in the video)
  2. Theist who embraces science wants to reconcile quantum theory with the creation story in Genesis (around 2:40 in the video).
  3. Theist thinks that God is the greatest gift from the Bible.(around 4:16 in the video).
  4. Theist does not understand why we can’t use the Bible to prove the Bible is true (around 7:06 in the video).
  5. Theist believes that most scientists are creationists and that evolution is not a fact (around 9:42 in the video).

I don’t particularly like to ridicule people… I can’t even do it without a stiff drink. Okay maybe I can, but it does give me a good reason to consume large amounts of alcohol. The point I am making here is that some people are lost causes and are not willing to be logical or reasonable. These people need to be made into an example because these delusions of grandeur are moving legislators and people of power into making decisions that affect all of us—most of the time in negative ways.

Have you tried reasoning with people with no success? Have you debunked their arguments and they refuse to accept anything other than their own beliefs? Send me a picture of their comment and they may be the next dumbass of the week.

I would really appreciate it if you…

How to Convert a Theist into an Atheist?

I was recently asked, “How do you convert a theist to atheism?”
My answer: Very carefully.

You will never, ever convert an theist to atheism and in the unlikely event that you do it will not be the best conversion. There is only one effective way to convert a theist–make them begin to think rationally and skeptically about their beliefs. Theists are not going to become an atheist by you attacking their beliefs. Theists are not going to become an atheist because you insult their intelligence. Think about it. Many of you used to be theists! Did you suddenly stop believing when someone attacked your beliefs or insulted your intelligence? Probably not. There is no argument that you can make that will successfully convert someone to atheism either. I say successfully because if you actually change someones mind with an argument, what happens when they hear a better argument?
It is for this reason that a successful deconversion is a lengthy process of enduring cognitive dissonance and self realization. You need to treat every theist as if this is their first time talking to an atheist, unless they give you a reason to do otherwise. I understand that some people are lost causes and so far gone that nothing can bring them back. It is okay to accept that. However, the vast majority of theists have never had their beliefs examined or questioned, especially by their own mind. When a theist goes to a theist they are looking for reassurance, but when a theist goes to an atheist they are looking to have their beliefs questioned. This presents us with a unique opportunity to quell the stereotype of atheists being militant, emotionally empty, or purposeless. We have to share the positive side of atheism. My life has changed in amazing ways since I became an atheist and I want to share that with people that come seeking answers. I encourage you to do the same.

I would really appreciate it if you…

Are Christians Persecuted by Militant Atheists?

It is not far-fetched to think that Christians, as well as other religious folks, distort reality to adhere to their own beliefs. This especially comes into play when they refer to us as “militant atheists.” Militant when used as an adjective means combative and aggressive in support of a political or social cause, and typically favoring extreme, violent, or confrontational methods.

If we were to consider that definition, religious folk would have to concede that this actually has described their approach for centuries. Show me where atheists armed with modern weaponry have attacked Bible printing presses. Show me where atheists have attempted to silence your freedom of speech. Show me where atheists have forced or indoctrinated you into a lack of a belief. It is impossible. People do not act on the lack of a belief or beliefs, they act on the presence of them. Atheism has never done anything, especially not anything militant, other than doubting the claim that your god exists.

If you call standing up for equality militant, then so be it.

Hypocrite of the Week #4: Pastor Caught Cheating on Film with Pants Down

A Kenyan Anglican Pastor was caught red handed on camera with his hands deep in the cookie jar belonging to a member of his congregation.

The Pastor, in the video was seen pants down while the woman with him, who is a member of his church, had nothing on and in bed. The woman in question had complained of ill health and approached the pastor for intercessory prayer. Her husband, also a church member and close friend of the Pastor, was apparently trailing her following hunches of an affair by his wife. He caught the two while in the act and began throwing blows at his wife while the Pastor tried to hurriedly put his pants on.

Although she was on the receiving end, the Pastor stood by his claims that it was the woman who had seduced him and further lured him into the act.

What was baffling was the end where the Pastor and the husband left the place together like nothing had happened but the woman wasn’t with them.

The Anglican church has said it has began investigations and would carry out disciplinary actions if the claims are true.

I guess getting caught balls deep is not considered evidence.

The Importance of Education

“God did it” is not a good excuse because it is intellectually lazy. We would not have civilization as we know it if we were all intellectually lazy. Civilization is built upon the backs of the few who strived to understand our world. The few that postulated theories that would either make the world a better place or that would give others an understanding of our world that could make it a better place. We have to keep growing as a society and the truth is–we have outgrown fairytales. We have outgrown intellectual laziness. Education is the way of the future and any civilization, including the United States, that refuses to accept that has already accepted its own demise.

Why do you want to disprove god’s existence?

Sometimes on social media a theist will attempt to take a petty jab at me by accusing me of only desiring to disprove their god’s existence.

First, no one can disprove that your god doesn’t exist. I can prove that your holy texts are inaccurate. I can prove your holy texts are immoral. I can prove that your religion is bullshit and harmful. I can even prove that your god’s nature is contradictory and illogical, but even that doesn’t disprove your god. I can’t disprove your god.

Second, I don’t want to disprove your god. If people only believed in a god and did good things in his name, I would be totally okay with that. However, many terrible things have been done in your religion’s name and your god, if he exists, is responsible and should be held accountable. Not only would he be responsible, but you are responsible for supporting an institution that thinks women are inferior, teaches children that they are worthless, and generally causes dissension and worldwide turmoil. Religious wars, the declaration of condoms to prevent HIV/AIDS as a sin, stifling medical and scientific research which led to the deaths of millions, the suppression of women’s rights, and the discrimination of groups of people are a couple other things you and your god are responsible for. I don’t know if your god exists, but it’s better for his reputation if he didn’t.

I’m not buying into your bullshit about an omnibenevolent god that allows children to starve to death. I’m not buying into your bullshit about an omnipotent god that can’t stop child rapists. I’m not buying into your bullshit about a omniscient god that knew how terrible his creation would be and he didn’t do anything to change it. I’m not buying into your bullshit about an omnipresent god that watches all of the suffering and evil in the world and chooses to do nothing.

I refuse to buy into your bullshit, but I don’t want to disprove your god. He is doing a fine job of that himself.

I would really appreciate it if you…
